DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the puree with the sugar in the top of a double boiler until very thick.
  • Stir in cinnamon and walnuts.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lay out 1 sheet of phyllo dough, brush lightly with melted butter or olive oil.
  • Cover with a second sheet of dough and brush lightly with butter or oil.
  • Using a pastry tube or other convenient technique, place a pencil-thin line of the pumpkin filling along the length of the phyllo dough sheet just inside the edge.
  • Fold the edge over to completely cover the pumpkin filling.
  • Continue rolling the phyllo dough into a long thin tube.
  • Brush lightly with butter or oil as you roll.
  • Take one end of the roll and coil up, taking care not to make the coil so tight that it breaks.
  • Arrange the coils so they are close together but not touching on an oiled baking sheet.
  • If desired, brush completed coil with egg white.
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until golden brown.
